Can one person make a difference?

It’s Friendship Friday! This is the day to focus on giving back or paying it forward.

I don’t know about you but I have found myself doubting what I am doing more in the last two years than I ever have. What meaning or purpose does it have? Does it make enough difference to continue with the effort? These are doubts that run through my head in those low, quiet times. They are not there all the time, but often enough to make myself question things occasionally. Do you have moments like this?

And what I need to remember is that in my memories those pivotal moments were not usually big events. Usually it was a teacher, mentor, or friend simply leaning over and smiling. It was a friend sending a card or a big hug from that favorite auntie. The gestures don’t have to be big, but intentional.

These memories remind me to remember the smiles on crafters’ faces, the laughter, and the friendships that are started over stamps, ink, and paper. In those moments of doubts I remember what Mother Teresa said. “If you can’t feed a hundred people, feed just one.” I may not be able to reach thousands but I can touch you. And if today has more laughs and smiles because of card class or whatever event then I have achieved so much success. This year I am being taught to be present. Don’t overthink and enjoy the moments. Thank you for being part of those moments with me.

What moments will you create?

Happy Crafting!

With inky fingers,

Joni 🙂
